The trouble comes from here:

	decoder = codecs.getreader('utf-8')          # UTF-8 reader
        with decoder(infdraw,errors="replace") as infd :

It's not the CSV module that's blowing up.  If I just feed the
raw unconverted bytes from the ZIP module into the CSV module,
the CSV module runs without complaint.

I've tried 'utf-8', 'ascii', and 'windows-1252' as codecs.
They all blow up. 'errors="replace"' doesn't help.
